Burj Khalifa is inviting artists and designers from the UAE and all over the world to display their pièce de résistance on the facade of one the most iconic buildings in the world.
Announcing the competition on social media earlier this week, the contest details were as follows:

The competition, titled 'Burj Khalifa Facade Art Open Call', invites all video, light and 3D mapping artists and designers to submit proposals to have their work displayed on the iconic structure's facade. Submissions can be made by individuals or collectives residing in the UAE or internationally.
Selected artists and designers will be credited for all work and have their work displayed daily for a minimum period of one month as well as promoted on Burj Khalifa's official channels.
The technical submission guidelines are:
- Minimum 5 minute video content in MOV format?
- The content should be created for a minimal viewing distance of 100m (larger video details or animation are recommended)?
- Use 'BK-Content Overlay' as template for content creation (It can only be used to identify the screen positions in 800x1800 video)?
- Do not consider individual pixels or lines and do not render as pixelated?
Proposals should be sent to ArtandDesign@burjkhalifa.ae . Submission Deadline is February 29, 2016.
Burj Khalifa's laser, light and fireworks show has become popular all over the world. Here are some of the most impressive shows in recent times:
